In the end there was very healthy competition among these six Linux distributions on the Intel Raptor Lake desktop. Most importantly, no functional issues or other problems were encountered running these six Linux distributions on the brand new Raptor Lake hardware.

Clear's PHP package is aggressively optimized with PGO and the like for delivering terrific performance.

In the end it was a rather competitive mix of distributions. Out of more than 200 tests, Intel's Clear Linux came in first place 34% of the time followed by Arch-based EndeavourOS with wins 25% of the time and then Debian Bookworm with wins 20% of the time... For many of the first place finishes the top-tier competitors were running neck-and-neck.

Coming in last place most often was Ubuntu 22.10.

If taking the geometric mean of the benchmark results where they all completed successfully on all six Linux distributions under test, Intel's Clear Linux was the notable front-runner. Those wishing to look through all of the benchmarks conducted on these Linux distributions using the Intel Core i9 13900K system can see the data via this result page.
